The can threads need work


Overall, I like the product. I am hoping that it proves it's self out in the long run and the paint does not come up due to unseen wax... only time will tell.I did not like the can lid threads. It wanted to cross thread every time I put the lid back on, which is often, in order to prevent it from evaporating or getting tipped over. Eventually the lid got stuck bad enough that I had to punch a hole in the can and drain it into a wiper fluid bottle. Fortunately it has not eaten the plastic bottle. I would guess that a plastic bottle would have been cheaper and better from the beginning.

East Berlin, PA


I would buy it again


I decided to try this as an alternative to Interlux 202 because it is less expensive and is reported not to have as strong of a smell. Indeed it doesn't have the strong smell of Interlux 202, is less expensive, and seems to work. It may flash off a little faster than the Interlux 202, but it's hard to tell here in Florida during a heat wave. I was using this on a 35-year-old sailboat deck, so not sure how much "stuff" was there for it to remove, but after using it water sheeted evenly over the area, so there appears there are no contaminants left behind.
